Smartphone camera advances have been jaw-dropping. Engineers continue to advance low-light performance, while adding computational effects like bokeh and embedding additional cameras with telephoto and ultra-wide lenses.

However, with all the challenges the camera teams solved, one feature lags behind – the flash.

Carrying a bag feels like a cumbersome step backward. A Phoneslinger could keep you quick on the draw.
